Olympus PEN E-P2 review
Was initially sceptical of the Pen series, but the E-P2 with its EVF has changed this.
It is now my camera of choice - more usable than any other - easy to carry therefore I use it more.
Even with the EVF attached it is pocketable (if you have largish pockets!).
Feels really solid - more of a camera than the Panansonic G1 which I briefly owned.
Noise is really not a problem if shooting RAW and processing in LR3.
Manual focussing with magnified assist is really useful and I find myself using this feature a lot.
EVF is really superb and the amount of information available to the eye is a revelation.
Small rear dial and buttons awkward/too easy to get wrong setting or activate accidentally.
EVF slightly slack - countered this with a sliver of gaffer tape on hot-shoe to make a tighter fit.
Focussing is fine for my purpose (landscapes and street) but would be unsuitable for action or fast nature photography unless manual focussing invoked.
